F2 Bernedoodle Family Tree

It all dates back to the time when a Bernese Mountain Dog fell head over paw for an elegant Poodle. Their love was strong and resulted in healthy puppies, now known as Bernedoodles. Bernedoodle puppies that have purebred parents are known as F1 Bernedoodle puppies or first-generation puppies.

The family tree continues. F2 Bernedoodle puppies are the next level of cuteness, intelligence, and fluffiness! F1 Bernedoodles, which are 50% Poodle and 50% Bernese Mountain Dog, are the parents of F2 puppies.

Bernedoodle puppies inherit the charm of a Bernese Mountain Dog and the intelligence of a Poodle. They are protective and friendly canines that are easily trainable, clever, and active.

This amazing crossbreed resembles a walking cloud of fluff with eyes. Their coats range from curly, wavy, and straight, depending on the genetics. If you’ve heard of “puppy dog stare,” mark our words that Bernedoodle is the master of it.

F2 Bernedoodle Characteristics

F2 Appearance and Color

F2 Bernedoodle resemble the canines of the first generation. Both have a smaller build and can be black, brown, and white. One of the sought-after Bernedoodle colors is the tri-color. Although rare, the mix of chocolaty, whitish, and black are an all-time favorite.

F2 Coat

F2 Bernedoodle puppies are born with a different coat, which changes according to their parents’ coats. In general, you can expect a Bernedoodle to have one of three following coats: curly, wavy, and straight.

Curly Bernedoodles shed less, so take it into account if shedding is a big no-no for you in the house. The good thing is that most Bernedoodles puppies are born with wavy to curvy coats, so shedding is not likely to be a problem.

F2 Grooming

F2 Bernedoodle needs good care. Be ready to buy a sturdy brush because you will untangle those thick curls on your pup. Otherwise, its coat will get matted, and you want to avoid that. Daily brushing should maintain your puppy in a good appearance.

If the curls grow too long and brushing doesn’t help, you can clip them short every few months.

F2 Size

F2 Bernedoodle puppies grow as perfect flat or house dogs. Although the size of an F2 Bernedoodle will depend on its parents, Central Illinois Doodles match similarly sized parents so that it’s easier to predict the weight and height of future puppies.

When compared with other small designer dogs, Bernedoodles grow a bit larger since puppies of Bernese Mountain Dogs can’t be that miniature.

F2 Temperament

All Bernedoodles have similar temperaments regardless of their generation.
